In response to the implementation to the recent FDA’s imposed regulations, which carry great implications and and are expected to lead to substantial financial losses, three organizations have teamed up in the US setting up the campaign, “Right to Vape”.
Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA), and the American Vaping Association (AVA), have decided tojoin forces and go on a bus tour this coming October. Their plan is to go through fifteen leading states, and discuss with the authorities why they should review these regulations. Timing is on the campaign’s side as these politicians will want as many votes as possible under their belt for next November’s elections.
With the nation’s 15,000 vaping businesses facing bankruptcy, Paul Blair, state affairs manager at Americans for Tax Reform, pointed out that the aim of this tour is to raise awareness amongst lawmakers and the general public about the benefits of switching from smoking to vaping, and of course present the threats faced by the small business in the industry. Ultimately they will be urging these influential politicians to review and amend the recently implemented deeming rule.
Presenting reliable research results
Amidst lots of claims against vaping products, several entities and anti-tobacco experts have condemned these products for reasons varying from the fact that somee-liquids contain nicotine to the theory that vaping may act as a gateway to smoking. However many health experts and organizations on an international scale have spoken up in favour of vaporizers, putting forward evidence and research reports showing that vaping is a significantly safer alternative to smoking and that e-cigarettes are the most effective smoking cessation tool.
The “Right to Vape” campaign will be touring through Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The hope is that the above evidence, proving the benefits of vaping, falls on the right ears, reaching the people who can actually effect change.
